Missed Corrections

  • 155 - Muhammad Ali passed away in 2016. Not in 1999 or “a few years” after that.I know Lee retracted but A League of Their Own is baseball on a real-life 4x All-American Girls Professional Baseball League champions the Rockford Peaches. - Edsicalz
  • 155 - I dunno if it counts as a miscorrection, but it is pronounced "Ren-Oh" (not Renault). Oh and regarding that, I am not sure if Marc is aware, but I always thought that elephants had four knees so I had to look it up and it's actually a factoid and common misconception that they have 4 forward facing knees and the front "knees" are actually a wrist like all other mammals, it just looks more knee-like than in other quadrupeds. - Proverbial Lightkeeper Adam
  • 155 - Incidentally, committing "neph" = "kidney" to memory has helped me out a lot in my own trivia experience, much in the same way you guys handled the Ostrich question. - Kevin Hunt
  • A KnowNote Voicemail from Alex Patton
